Our house is about 8 years old.
In the last 4-5 years we have been having more and more problems with birds' nests under the roof and under the roof tiles.
The cross shingles (see photo) unfortunately do not cover the roof on the side, which gives the birds a nesting place that is also used. Do you know if this is normal (I've never seen a house with exposed tiles) and what can be done?Another problem is that the roof under the gutter is also not properly covered (see photo with red arrows). There are also birds nesting here. Does anyone know if this incomplete closure is necessary or a structural defect? The main problem, unfortunately, is the large amount of bird droppings. I am very concerned that aggressive bird droppings can cause damage under the roof, and it certainly is not good for the health of my young children. What can be done here?
